Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
Engine acts like it is vapor locking.. Can Mow 30 minutes then engine shuts down sounds like running out of fuel. Already cleared the gas cap vent just to be sure. If you wait just 1-2 Minutes it fires right back up. But will not hold a load can only drive not cut. If I wait till it cools down I can cut 30 minutes again. Changed fuel filter but not with a craftsman filter. My old fuel line fron filter to carb just fell apart so I did replace that.
Heat related problem, probably needs the valves adjusted. When the engine gets hot the valve clearances change

Could have a bad ignition coil.when coil gets hot wires expand loses contact inside when cools down remakes contact. when engine shuts down check for spark right away
